Across Trumbull County, area substance abuse groups partnered with local officials for anti-drug and crime marches.

On Saturday, about a dozen community members walked the streets of a neighborhood in Warren.

It was part of a first-time, ongoing effort this summer to encourage people to take back their streets.

The march also told people know how to report crime and drug activity.

“This is a model actually, that TAG law enforcement had seen other communities do and that were working well in the community, and we just found that relationships are the best way, if we can actually meet people and talk to them, have a conversation, it’s so much better than just leaving a brochure,” said Lauren Thorp, Project Director with ASAP.

There will be one more event this summer, an anti-drug rally at 10 a.m. on Court House Square in Warren on September 21.
